About Mike Nixon

In January, 2009 my husband and I ecstatically purchased our unit which we refer to as 'Starfish'. We continually refurbish Starfish- adding a stove, dishwasher, painting it a crisp clean white, purchasing linen curtains, an unusual queen size bed with drawers for storage underneath, a queen size sofa sleeper, a six piece wicker set that is oh so comfortable and remodeled the closets to include additional shelving, and a white armoire next to the sofa for yet more additional storage.

We live in New Orleans and have visited various areas of the Fl Panhandle for the past thirty years. Seacrest Beach has it all and our Starfish is just perfect!

Mike Nixon purchased this condo in 2009

Why Mike Nixon chose South Walton

This is the most fabulous location ever. For me it is all about location. The views of the Gulf are excellent. It is within walking distance to many restaurants. The grounds within a mile in both directions are well manicured with palms and brilliant soft green grass. There is a smooth path for walking, jogging and cycling. The architecture of the neighboring communities is inspirational. It has a gigantic pool and jacuzzi. We LOVE it!!

What makes this condo unique

The view of the Gulf, proximity to great restaurants of all price categories, nature walk at Alys Beach, pristine beaches, fishing, cycling, jogging, canoeing in the nearby state park coastal dune lakes, unbelievable shopping opportunities- I cannot overstate that fact, yet the property is located in a very serene location and for a reasonable price.

Romantic Getaway for two

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our 4 day stay at Starfish. The condo was clean, comfortable, and well maintained. The location is great, within walking distance to Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach. We were also within walking distance to Seacrest Beach where we rented bikes for an all day ride through 30A. The owner was very pleasant and easy to work with. He was very responsive and welcoming. We highly recommend staying at Starfish, and hope to do so again in the near future.

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time to the "Starfish."

It's a perfect place to escape when you need to unwind and relax. Everything you need is provided and organized! Love the beach decor and accents and the binder was extremely helpful in making decisions! Thanks again

Haunted.

  • 1 of 5

The dishwasher came on twice in the middle of the night and when we left it open it automatically shut. Husband kept hearing noises and didn't sleep much at all. Place and location is nice but we were not the only ines there. Spooky.

Impressive. Comfortable. Great View.

  • 5 of 5

This "tiny house" has everything you need packed into a small area. You'll find all the amenities plus more than you'd normally expect. The extra large balcony overlooks the pool and in the distance, you can see the Gulf. Owners leave a very detailed binder that explains everything you can do and see. They've thought of everything. Seacrest and Rosemary Beach have the best restaurants. George's is right next door and is a must visit. Seaside, a colorful village of houses, has to be visited. Be sure to eat lunch at The Market--best fried grouper ever. Or Bud and Alley's for a spectacular sunset. More tourists visit Destin about 30 mnutes away down 30A. Seacrest is a much sought after place. This condo is a gem. You won't be disappointed. And if you have questions, the owners always answer their phone!

Nicely decorated, great location!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this place. It was nicely decorated and it was great location for us as we love visiting Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach. The only reason for not giving 5 stars is because the curtain wasn't thick enough and it was too bright in the morning (and middle of the night). We ended up waking up multiple times because of the light. Other than that, it was great!

Perfect place for girl's long weekend at the beach!

  • 4 of 5

My adult daughter and I had a great four day getaway. Room enough so we weren't cramped. The unit was very clean. The bed was very comfortable. Close to beaches and great places to eat. We preferred driving to the public beach at Inlet Beach.
